like to set the country right side up. they understand president obama has been the leader in turning this country around, so much so that its growth and job creation keeps going up and up. they like to see an optimistic approach to government. that's what president obama has. they're also big believers in education. for a candidate like mitt romney who wants to abolish the department of education, we think we have a greater message for the independents, for women. we certainly are protecting women's health care. those are issues the independents are interested in. as well as the economy. who are they going to choose? someone who sides with sort of the antiquated views of abolishing or eliminated planned parenthood and attacking women's health care or look to someone who believes in embracing all of america. that's an optimistic view. we're optimistic and working hard and we really believe that nments along with those who are champions of president obama's cause will come to recognize that america is greater when we're united together. that's how the vote will turn out on november 6th
romney at lunchtime, president obama, there right now. our chief correspondent is there as well. jessica, that city is getting plenty of attention today. at least the two men weren't there at the same time. that would have been a bit awkward. >> yeah, although they would have had an unscripted debate. that would have been unusual and probably good for the public. this state getting so much attention because it is one of those must-win battlegrounds, don. and it tells us so much about the -- the map tells us so much about where they're fighting in these final days. where we are right now is not ju just -- it's sort of a two-for for the president. not just fighting ie way, but across the river. the president fighting hard to hold onto wisconsin as a blue state. he is visiting it three times in the closing days of this campaign. if you count debuke, why when they're not taking anything for granted. and paul ryan, that's his home state. so his edition to the romney ticket has made that reach for the pthd. it's still polling to the president's way. it just shows you how cloesz this fight real
on the track that we are on. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. >>> right now, more than 1,000 dominion crews are on their way to new jersey. they are going help restore power to the hundreds of thousands of people still in the dark after sandy. the workers know they have a tough task ahead of them. their mission is rewarding. >> most of the customer base is extremely grateful. we do der i've a lot out of that. it's fantastic. hopefully, we'll run into the same thing up there. i'm sure we will. we are there to help. >> it isn't clear how long the crews will be gone. they will be working gruelling hours while they are away. they will work shifts of at least 12 hours. >> we are getting a look at the damage from sandy. take a look at these before and after satellite photos in new jersey. the storm is believed to have caused $50 billion in damages. so far, it's claimed 92 live, 11 in virginia. many businesses are without power, it's down from a peak of 8.5 million. getting around new york is just about impossible. many in new york and new jersey trying to drive the
. a little better for obama. still very close. now obama may be the top prize for the candidates right now l are other important battleground states. we'll take through over the course of the next hour in a way that only cnn can. john avalon and i traveled more than 1800 miles on cnn's battleground bus tour as the race for the white house reaches its conclusion. no mat wrer i ter where i go, t economy is the most important issue in this election. i've been traveling with john avalon. he joins me now as does my good friend christine romans. she joins me from washington. jim acosta from did he back to you, iowa, where mitt romney just landed. brianna keeler is in milwaukee, wisconsin, traveling with president obama. let's start here in ohio. the state has a very complex economy. here's some of what we've been hearing from voters on this trip. >> just a lot of depressed areas. a lot of joblessness. >> just looking at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me. >> the last four years has not been very good for our small business. >> with the debt crisis, our country has, that burden is going to
voters, it moved them to the right. so you see independents edging toward mitt romney. president obama has had a decided edge among moderates. fascinating new division in the electorate that we're seeing playing out. >> stay here. we'll talk more about this. brianna keeler is in milwaukee. the president will be there later today. three days out. this is the final chance for the president to make his case to voters. what's the final message going to be? >> reporter: he's countering, ali, mitt romney's message where he is talking about being the candidate of real change. we've been hearing president obama say that's not true. president obama saying that he is the candidate of change, admitting that the change has been slow going as far as improvement to the economy. but still urging voters to have patience with him. remember, yesterday with those jobs numbers out, he pointed to private sector gains, trying to show that things are heading in the right direction. the other thing, he's trying to say to voters you know me. you may not agree with me all of the time. but you know i am a man of
still in ohio. but we know what's going on, right? no doubt about it. president obama is winning ohio. largely because he saved the auto industry and so many -- tens of thousands of jobs in ohio depend on the auto industry. so many families from the auxiliary businesses. in fact, the unemployment rate in ohio is lower than it is nationwide because the auto industry is back. thanks to president obama. g.m. is back making better cars than ever before. chrysler reported an 80% increase in their number in the third quarter of this year. it's all due to the auto bailout. it is working and mitt romney, we remember, opposed it. he wrote that famous op-ed for "the new york times". headline... let detroit fail. where he said don't do anything to help them out. let them go belly up. so, of course, romney campaign realizes panic panic panic panic, oh, my god we're losing ohio which we need. no republican president in over 100 -- no republican has ever been elected president in over 100 years without carrying ohio. so th
your neighbors who have not voted. >> stand right here in this denver neighborhood on that obama application we downloaded you can see a flag showing the location of the undecided voters. once the house is located, campaign workers move in and pinpoint the target. once inside, the undecided voters are gently persuaded to choose a candidate and make a decision. [ laughter ]
grapevine. civil rights icon who gave benediction at president obama inauguration says he believes all white people are going tohill. 91-year-old reverend joseph laurie told a group of obama supporters in georgia he is frightened by the level of hatred and bitterness coming out of the election. monroe county reporter writes "laurie said when he was a young militant he used to say all white folks were going to hell. then he mellowed and just said most of them were. now he said he is back to where he was." laurie attacked those black georgians who did not vote in the 2008 election. and criticized the national anthem as too militaristic. lowery is expected to give a news conference on the topic on friday. >>> who women in dominican republic claim new jersey democratic senator menendez paid them for sex. they told the "daily caller" senator agreed to pay them $500 apiece and only paid them $100. menendez tells geraldo rivera that story is false, absolutely false and contrived. finally, if you have noticed, a lot more jokes about romney than president obama on late night tv, now there are numbers
rate right now is 8%. president obama won the state in 2008 by a 9% advantage. joining us from denver is curtis hubbard. what is the top issue for colorado voters? guest: it would not surprise you when i sit the top issue is the economy and jobs. energy is a big issue. education is another big issue. among the latino population and especially democrats, immigration reform is a big issue. host: what is the demographic of the voters in colorado? guest: 52% women, 48% men. over the years, we have increased the number of people voting by mail. already 800,000 people have cast ballots in the state. the state is equally divided. one-third is republicans, one- third is democrats, and the other one-third are unaffiliated voters. everybody is playing for that group of unaffiliated voters. you try to figure out which way it will break. you will hear a lot of talk about appealing to women and latinos. we have heard a lot about the bennett strategy, that refers to the strategy michael bennett used in running against the tide and enter 2010 where by appealing to women and latinos he was able to ek
on the high end, but there's not any real concern right now in the obama camp that they're in danger of losing wisconsin. they're sending the president there just to try and nail it down because they don't want to leave any stone unturned. but right now, you get a sense of growing confidence in the obama camp. they feel like they're going to be okay. >> well, and here is the reason why. of all these battleground states, the president needs to win just three in order to win a second term to get 271 electoral votes and those are nevada where there are six votes, wisconsin where there are ten and here in ohio, there are 18. and winning just those three of all these battle grounds gets you to 271 in a very narrow win, but that's what would do it for him and they feel very good about those three states. >> assuming they hold pennsylvania. >> that's true. that is a big point right there. >> i think there's a sense that florida might be moving in romney's direction. structurally, that's always been the most problematic of the battleground states for obama. and if i were betting, i would bet romney ca
-smart and have a tough job, but president obama is right here. one is to my right, one is to my left, and the president is sitting on the stool, and they are both looking at me, saying yes, i did, now i did not, and i felt like this feels so familiar. i instinctively said well, he kind of did, but, and then turned and said the larger point -- i wish i had then -- -- i wish i had been -- that was shorthand. >> a lot of people ask me about if i thought it was appropriate, and aside from you be my friend, i defended you anyway because it is not that you interjected, but that you had it right when you interjected. that is the key. >> it would of been bad otherwise. [laughter] >> than we had a conspiracy theories that i had a transcript with me. i knew that was willing to come up? as you know, as reporters, things stick in your brain. you don't know where they come from. >> they only do if you have done the work. >> i wish i had been a tiny bit more articulate in the second that i was saying to romney you are right, but, and when i said the first thing, people started to applaud, which st
] >> tonight, tonight we are entering the final weekend of the campaign, and you are right at the obama rallies they are shouting more years and we are shouting three more days. and we are so very grateful to you and the people across the country, for all that you have given of yourselves to this campaign. this is not just about paul ryan and me, it is it about america. [ applause ] it is it about the future that we are going to leave our children. we thank you we ask you to stay at it until we win on tuesday night. [ applause ] now the closing hours of a campaign have a dynamic all their own and many voters have made up their mind who they will vote for. yeah, i figured you know what you will do, but there is it a lot of others are putting aside the demands of daily living and considering who they will vote for and how that will affect their lives and children and counselry. we ask them to look beyond the speeches and the attacks and the adlook to the record, accomplishments and failures and the judgment, because words are cheap and a record is it real and it is it earned with effort. [ applau
right here as carol costello takes over the next hour when we expect to hear live from president obama as he reacts to this, the final jobs report, before he puts his job on the line in four days. >> and also we would like to thank allen krueger and the rest of our guests here. we send it now to carol costello in the "cnn newsroom." >>> good morning to you. i'm carol costello, and thank you for being with us. it is a busy hour in the "cnn newsroom," and just ahead, the superstorm sandy, and the misery of long lines and short tempers and the staggering estimates of what it will cost us. politic pocketbooks and the new numbers are out, and the presidential campaigns are all in four days before the election. mitt romney and barack obama present their closing arguments, and we are sharing their cnn op-ed posted just this morning on cnn.com. both men offering competing visions to win your vote. here is a little bit of the rival messages that went online on our website this morning. president obama rallying around superstorm sandy and a government response that has been earning praise frankl
.0%, but now tick back slightly to the right now sh, and some people felt that the obama administration had manipulated the numbers after president obama's first panned debate. this was tweet ed at the time b jack welch, unbelievable jobs numbers, these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numbers. that sparked debate from welch and especially from me. this time we don't want the give the conspiracy theorists a chan chance. christine roman is going to break down how these numbers are calculated and then. christi christine? >> well, the report is two sides of the same coin. think of it that way. the jobs report is two separate surveys. the unemployment rate comes from a survey of 60,000 households and the jobs created survey comes from 141,000 businesses. to get the unemployment rate 2200 census workers interviewed 66,000 households. everyone is over 16 is classified as employed, unemploymented or not in the labor fost. then they extrapolate the rate. the job creation number comes from another sample which is the sample of 141,000 businesses who tell the government how many
that will crush business, i see that as a route that obama is taking. right now the free market is struggling. host: in the "financial times" this morning, u.s. lanes to stay on growth course -- u.s. lanes to stay on growth course. like a yacht in the wind, no sooner does the u.s. economy catch a breeze from one direction than a gust comes in from another and it struggle toss move forward. growth was in the third quarter of 2012 as gross domestic product rose at an annualized rate of 2%. housing gave the economy a boost. businesses, investment set it back. the growth data point to an economy with little momentum leaves considerable doubt about its resilience to the so-called fiscal cliff of tax rises and spending cuts due at the end of the year. host: back to the phones. mark in bethesda, maryland, on our line for independents. mark is optimistic. go ahead, mark. caller: hey, how you doing? yeah, i definitely do feel optimistic about the economy. i feel like things are kind of getting back to normal. the housing market is starting to recover. there are definitely signs that are visible with t
and toledo, will go very heavily for president obama. cincinnati, where i am sitting right now, will go heavily for mitt romney. what we need to watch on election night is columbus, where franklin county is, because we've been seeing the romney campaign campaign very heavily in central ohio in and around columbus. we're going to see president obama go there on friday. that's the area that could make up the difference come election night. >> okay. james peterson, last thought here. there is a pattern now of real dishonesty on the part of the romney campaign ads. they're out there saying that romney's been accused of outlawing birth control, contraception. nobody's ever accused him of that. they've said that he's not supporting the right of women to have it covered in their health plans. why are they putting out these desperate ads like jeep's going to china and women are under attack for buying birth control pills? i mean, it's an absurdity. who would be so uninformed as to believe these ads? >> well, chris, that's a different question. there are such a thing as uninformed voters and tha
to the final arguments. the final arguments were in clear view today. president obama saying things are going good and they are going in the right direction. all we need to do is keep doing what we are are doing and in four more years everything will be fine. governor romney's argument is the country is going in the wrong direction and we need to have change and somebody to create jobs and do something about the debt and put the country in the right place. when you have two out of every three americans thinking the country is going in the wrong direction, it is hard to make a tatous quo argument like the president made today. we will see the various ground games come into play here. we are already seeing it in the early vote. the early news s not good for the the president and is good for governor romney. >> look at ohio four years ago. 230,000, 40,000 fewer democrats have voted, nearly -- >> no, i have it as of last night. 547,000 democrats have voted early or cast an absentee ballot or requested an absentee ballot, 470,000 republicans. 712,000pares to 712,000 democrats four years ago. >> se
, romney could have done this earlier. he could have maybe forced obama and the campaign to redirect its funds to states where they didn't want to have to play. just on the -- just to sort of deplete resources, if not to actually win votes. >> that's right. the 50 state strategy. you could have rolled that out. you could have tried to get him to play everywhere, spread him thinner and they didn't do it. it's too late to be doing that in any significant way. they might hit a few key markets with ads like in toledo to try to swing a little chunk of the state that they actually think they have a shot in but beyond that the real question now, it's going to come down to the ground game and what everyone has been saying all along is that democrats have a far better ground game in place and have had far more offices in place for longer and going to be able to turn out their votes better than the republicans are and we're going to see if that's true. >> rana, how much do you think sandy and the response by the white house affects swing voters. different thing if you're in new york and the trista
needed right now in washington that people think is broken. and president obama who has glossy new brochure, when you look inside it is more of the same. bill: when you think about what the obama team did in 2008, i mean do you have to, do you have to go well beyond the numbers of 2004? and because when you talk about these voters who voted for the president four years ago and they have been disillusioned and perhaps not supporting him now, can you point to examples or concrete evidence where the obama supporters of 2008 have left him now? >> i can and it's the early voting numbers that are coming in. looks like we are overperforming in all the early voting and democrats are underperforming as compared to 2008. and we expected early voting to go more towards democrats because that is what happened in 2008. democrats like to vote early. republicans like to vote on election day. despite that we've been able to increase our numbers significantly and their numbers are down. so i think there is evidence there is less enthusiasm on their side. some of these obama supporters last time hav
of obama care day one. i will repeal obama care on day one with all the energy i can muster. >> all right. so we are dgoing to take mitt romney at his word. he will get all of that done on his first day in office. what about the next four years? what would a romney presidency really look like. joining me to nothiprognosticati melber, neera tanden, kate ton dawson. let's start with the tax plan. if there is something i believe mitt romney is invested in doing, it is the tax plan. he claims it is revenue neutral. >> you have to claim certain things. this goes for both sides. there is this thing called business cycle. this is what we study. in a free market economy, recessions and recoveries, upswings and down swings are part and parcel of the world we live in. when you look at how budgets are proposed, off of the congressional budget office projection. they are not that realistic. in 2014, 2015, 2016, they are projected real gdp growth of 4.4%. sounds pretty good. how realistic is it? if you take a look at reality, what's happened since the beginning of the century? gdp has grown at 1.7% an
. hillary clinton and president obama come out and try to set the record straight. right now and not spin everything. we don't -- we don't want the details. we just want answers and want accountability and want people to resign if they have to. >> brian: scott, two quick points to get to in a minute. real quick, when you hear the secretary of defense say i didn't want to put my guys into harm's way in uncertain situation, you are a navy seal. don't you always go into uncertain situations? >> if i got the call right now, right now to go to libya or anywhere else to help folks and they needed me, i would be there right now. every single military member, cia folks, state department guys, security, anybody would step up to the plate and run out there in harm's way to save fell will he americans. there is no doubt about it. >> brian: you think he was disingenuous when he said that because you and delta force and guys like you do this all the time? >> folks like us and that are out there right now. that's what we do. that's what we would do. i think it was a misleading statement at best. >> bri
will be like under president obama by seeing what it is like right now. the course he has put us on, higher taxes, obamacare, cutting medicare by $716 billion, having in place a series of taxes, regulatory policies that make it harder for a small business to start, that ends up hurting and you your family. this is an election about big things, meaning whether we will have energy independence, whether america's military is strong and whether our economy will lead the world. but it is also a matter of big things in your life, in your homes. if you are a senior, friends, or, perhaps, you are caring for a senior in your home and if president obama were re-elected and you developed a medical condition that requires a medical specialist and the call the office of the specialist and the appointment secretary says, under obamacare, i'm sorry we are not taking anymore medicare patients because of the cuts that were put on medicare bio-- by obamacare, because of the cuts, half the doctors surveyed say they will not take any more patients on medicare so that is why we will repeal obamacare. and if you
are up. they are over the 2008 numbers. we are moving in the right direction. that is attributed to obama and the shared ground game we have in place. >> the independent line. caller: i have been following you. i appreciate your plane speak. i hope you stay true to the politics and not get into the corruption of the political atmosphere. the mess we were in from 2000 on, americans tend to say i do not like the way that was. i want to fix it. we want to talk about 200 years ago, but we will not talk about 10 years ago. mr. whose dead doing what he was doing. people need to realize the matter what side you are aon, that goes to the core. i do not trust people who say we will take care of everything. we have to make things happen rather than let things happen. what do you think? guest: good point. it is outrageous to think the secretary of state, the top election official in a state like ohio that happens to be a swing state, would try to -- >> we will break away in a moment or two to take you live to petersburg, virginia after to miss state university and the first lady, michelle obama. >>
attention when the time is right. that's why you see obama doing well in places like ohio. >> again, host: again, we're being joined by tim ryan, a democrat from youngstown, ohio, via skype. we go to a caller from ohio. good morning, john. caller: good morning. good morning, mr. ryan. i am calling to ask you if you're familiar with the ballots that are -- they're having trouble with in switching over when they're voting for mitt romney and at the end the check mark is then over on the democratic side? are you familiar with them? there's been a couple of programs of it. one of them is right here in columbus, ohio. where they've had a few, i'm not going to say a gaggle of them but there's been quite a few. but then i heard you earlier on the delphi workers, that you and senator brown was trying to work something out for them. i just watched a program on that where they were interviewing the delphi workers themselves. they said they have no pension. they're not getting any pension. so it's kind of -- this kind of spin sounds like it's coming from you there a little bit. >> congressman ryan?
of governor romney, president obama will probably say, i haven't gotten his official response, he will probably say the economy is expanding. it is going in the right direction. we need more time for number of new jobs we really need but we're going in the right direction. governor romney will almost certainly respond we're not growing fast enough. we could do a whole lot better without going into all this debt. bill: stuart, thank you. the closing argument for governor romney happens this afternoon. we'll show you which state he is making that in. it will be very interesting to many. thank you, stuart. see you 9:20 on fbn. you got it. martha. martha: let's get another look at this jobs picture. there is combination of 23 million americans who are either unemployed right now or what we call underemployed. more than 3.5 million of those folks have been unemployed a year or more. it taking average for 40.2 weeks for someone unemployed to find a job. that is a very long time. i don't have to tell any folks that are in that situation that is painful. here is another look at it, anothe
president obama leave and they didn't heed the warnings and they stayed behind and that's my concern right now and it's the concern of everybody from the community is the safety of our friends and family that they didn't want to leave. >> steve: absolutely. we had the councilman on a little while ago. he said in that particular neighborhood, the houses were real close to each other. >> brian: they were attached, i think. >> steve: yeah. one right after another, like box cars. do we have any idea what caused the fire? >> i think some of the transformers on top of the towers, some of the wires may have hit the water would have started the fires. but with the heavy winds and lack of any first responders due to the flooding, the fire just spread very quickly in different areas. i myself stayed up very late. i just woke up a little while ago to follow people on different social media sites to try and see where they were and ha they were doing. 0 o'clock inmine reported the morning, the house one of the ones that burned. >> brian: describe the neighborhood. >> it's basically a community of sing
? [applause] that's exactly right. four years ago -- that's right. four years ago president obama said he would do all these great things, hope and change. heed cut the deficit in half, heed bring everybody together. the deficit has doubled. it's the most partisan time we've had and just look at the jobs that didn't occur. we got a new jobs report today. unemployment is higher than the day he took office. you got 23 million americans struggling for work today. 15% of our fellow citizens living in poverty today. that's the highest in a generation. all those jobs he said heed create if he borrowed a lot of money and gave it to these interest groups, it didn't material lies. we have a jobs crisis. wouldn't it be nice to actually have a job creator in the white house for a change? [applause] four years ago i want to read you a quote. if you don't have fresh ideas, use stale tactics to scare voters. if you don't have a record to run on then you paint your opponent someone should one from. you make a big election about small things. you know who that was four years ago. so you do know who that
for our government. there was a democrat named john f. kennedy. he had it right. ask not what your country can do for you. ask what you can do for your country. the way i was brought up. democrat or republican. that was patriotism. the obama late night talk show mirn tour continued this week the president was on jay leno. >> you know, i was fine with up until about 7th grade. and then malea is a fresh man in high school and i am pretty lost. >> yeah, i know >> it is it tough and fortunately they are great students on their own. and you know, if something doesn't work. i will call over to the department of the energy and see if they have a phycist. >> aing the math skills don't go above the 7th grade. i am glad he acknowledged it. i was watchinglet policies and wondered why he can't figure it out. he was on david letterman and asked about the national debt. he doesn't know. and mr. president, it is it 16 trillion dollars and some change. a lot of change and geth bigger all of the time here's another math piece that you might need to be aware of 23 million americans don't have a yob and many
